If you’ve ever had to make content or layout changes on a live site, you’ll know how dangerous that can be.
If you’ve ever had to make content or layout changes on a live site, you’ll know how dangerous that can be. Users can access your website at any time and you may be in the middle of adjusting layout settings, adding or deleting menus or a whole raft of other changes that you don’t want them to see yet.
You could install one of the various Maintenance Mode plugins that are available which prevent your users from seeing anything at all on your website. Or you could install the Out Of Sight Editor Plugin instead, and allow your users to continue accessing your site as normal, while you work on the layout and content behind the scenes. Your users will be none the wiser.
When this plugin is active any changes you make within your WordPress dashboard will NOT be visible to other visitors to your website.
